There seems to be a strong pattern on TE regarding critiqueing behaviour and many pictures being viewed sometimes hundreds of times without a single critique or very few considering the amount of times a picture is viewed. Personally I'm seeing less response to my own work recently, though I actively critique when actively involved in the site, it seems unless you have established a strong group of friends who critique each other back and forth, its difficult to gain very much feedback at all.
I've experimented with uploading less traditional landscape images and it is obvious that certain images receive much more attention than other in terms of points and comments (this subject has been much debated and commented on previously), having said that, my more recent work and more unusual images still receive plenty enough views to expect more comments but it seems people choose not to for whatever reason...yet these "views" are chosen from the thumbnail gallery, so its a three step process. I think it would be really interesting if once a member decided to view a picture fully from the gallery page, that they could be locked in to that page as such and would have to leave a comment about the image before being able to move on. Perhaps quality of some critiques would fall, people would be more selective about which photo's they decide to view, but there would surely be more feedback and more learning on the whole.
Thought it was an interesting point to raise and I think its a bit of a shame that some of these habits are so strong on here now....would be interested to know some views on this.
